Today at Clear Spring School the first, second and third grade students will continue making their road signs for the school campus. You can see that I am making progress on my sloyd knives. I glue the knife blade in a rabbet cut on one side of the handle and glue a filler piece in the end. Next, I will drill through to complete the holes for the brass pins and then sand the half handle flush to the blade so the other side can be glued on in the same manner. I keep track of matching parts so that when the sides of the handle are glued together they appear seamless in the way they surround the blade.
